Omoiyari . . . Think of others first and good karma will return to you. — Frances H. Kakugawa

Dear Frances,

I’m one of the elders who still open doors. When a young man opened the door for my wife recently, she told him, “Thank you for being a gentleman. Your grandmother taught you well.”

She explained to me that after we’re gone, no one’s going teach our young children to live like gentlemen. Hope she’s wrong.
